Installation: When used for sheathing joint treatment, apply 20-40 mils (508-1016 μ) thick troweled to nominal 11/2” (38 mm) width centered on joint. The following calculated estimates do not take into consideration factors such as: joint gap width, substrate texture, material waste, or other factors. Values are based on maximum yield at 20 mil (508 μ) thickness:
• One sausage foil yields approximately 100 lf (30 m)
• One 2-gallon pail yields approximately 1288 lf (392 m)
When used for rough opening treatment or general detailing, apply at 20-40 mils (508-1016 µ) thick x 6” (152 mm) width trowel application. The following calculated estimates do not take into consideration factors such as: Construction geometry, substrate texture, material waste, or other factors. Values based on maximum yield at 20 mil (508 μ) thickness:
• One sausage foil yields approximately 25 lf (8 m)
• One 2-gallon pail yields approximately 322 lf (98 m)
GE Elemax 5000 liquid flashing works as a part of a complete silicone system to resist degradation. It forms a durable barrier to prevent air and water leaks, even after decades of exposure to the elements.
Elemax 5000 liquid flashing securely bonds to virtually all substrates and all Elemax companion products.
Elemax 5000 liquid flashing is backed by world-class technical support and extended warranties of up to 20 years as part of the Elemax system.
Elemax 5000 Liquid Flashing is commonly used to seal joints, seams, gaps, over/under-driven fastener heads, flashing, treat rough openings, inside/outside corners, and for adhering transition materials such as GE UltraSpan* UST/USM molded strips and corners.
Customers must evaluate MPM products and make their own determination as to the fitness of use in their particular applications.
Elemax 5000 Liquid Flashing should not be considered for:
- Underwater or other applications where the product will be in continuous contact with water.
- Installation on wet, damp, frozen or contaminated surfaces.
- Application to excessively basic or acidic substrates.
- In designs where the silicone is encapsulated and without access to atmospheric moisture (this material requires atmospheric moisture to cure from paste to rubber).
